* Land in Paris mid afternoon
*Takes about an hour to go through customs and get luggage
*If you head out the doors there will be tons of people working willing to take you anywhere
*Checked into our hotel Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel. Around $200.00 a night
*Hotel is close to everything and even the metro which takes you everywhere
*Got to the Eiffel tower around 5pm with already pre booked tickets to go up. Ticket cost around $20.00 per person
*Spent a few hours on the tour walking around, shopping, and taking in the views. Its very high but worth it
*Dinner we ate the crepes on the side of the street they were making out of carts. If you love crepes try one from the carts!
*Made our way to Cathedrale Notre-Dame De Paris! Wow what a church! We took a taxi to the church becuase it was a bit of a walk but once you go there you could walk around everywhere! The church is open everyday and it is free to get in. The line is a little long but it goes by fast. We probably waited around 20 mins to get in. Be sure if you visit in the summer to wear a hat because it gets to be very very warm during the day. Once you are in the church it takes around an hour or longer depending on how much time you would like to spend in there. #notredamedeparis #church
*We spent some time walking Champs-Elysees which leads you to Arc de Trimphe if you walk all the way down and you will see Place de la Concorde. Both very beautiful to see and it is a nice walk and a great way to see so many things. #champs-elysees
*Louvre Museum mid afternoon. Make sure you make reservation weeks to months in advance becuase it fills up very fast and if you try to buy tickets the day of you will not get in. The museum is open everyday except for Tuesdays so be sure to plan around that if you want to go. #louvremuseum
*A must is dinner at Le Train Bleu it is located inside the train station. Now there is no air conditioner inside so if you go in the warm months be sure to dress for the weather as it gets hot in there. The ambiance is amazing with chandeliers haning, old french decor, paintings that will blow your mind and the little detail around the restaurant is to die for. You can see the trains coming in as you sit and sip your wine. This is more of an elegant restaurant so be sure to dress to impress. The food is french and every dish we had amde our taste buds go crazy! Its a little pricey and I really do not recommend bringing kids as it is more of an adult scene. #letrainbleu
*Our last night we knew we wanted to do something fun so we pre booked the Moulin Rouge! This is a must see show! I would not recommend brining kids as there is a lot of nudity in the show. The tickets can get pricey starting at around $100.00 per person and up depending on where you want to sit. We sat closer to the stage so tickets were higher. Its very romantic inside with all the tables being covered in white, candles lit the room, everything is in red, soft music playing and everything being decorated in french style. The show is very long but very entertaining!! They even have a woman swimming with a big snake!!!! Please if you are going to Paris this is a must! You can buy drinks during the show and before. There is a bar and they also come around to your table.

@monique241 going up is really a site to see from the Tower!
If you go back to Paris be sure to hit those up it is pretty amazing to see! @rubyflynn92
You know i'VE been to Paris so many times and never gone up the Eiffel Tower. Or the Louvre for that matter, I've just admired the views. Need to rectify that on my next trip, great suggestions by the way
Paris is one of my favourite cities and Moulin Rouge is something I've never got round to doing. Sounds expensive but worth it!
